More information is slowly leaking out on Microsoft's
upcoming Zune portable media player (PMP). ZuneNation is reporting that the
domain name ZuneLive.com was registered back on May 24, 2006. While this
initial finding didn't raise many flags, the domain was registered to a man
named Jack Spurr. After doing a bit more digging, they found out that Mr. Spurr
has previously registered MicrosoftGadgets.com
which is an official Microsoft site that provides gadgets for the Windows Vista
Sidebar and Windows SideShow.
So we have an idea of what the final product may look
like, we’ve received word on its wireless capabilities,
we know that Microsoft is chatting with iPod
accessory makers and we now know that Microsoft has some sort of "Live"-esque
service waiting in the wings for Zune. The only question is how this service
may tie into Microsoft’s Live
Anywhere or XBOX
